Pullman, Wash., Friday, January 24, 1913
Unwarmed by any sunset light
The gray dawn darkened into night.
A night made hoary with the swarm
And whirl-dance of the blinding
As zigzag waving to and fro
Crossed and recrossed the winged
And ere the early bedtime came
The white drift piled the window
'And through the glass the clothes
Looked in like tall and sheeted
So all night long the storm roared
The morning broke without a sun;
In tiny spherule traced with lines
Of Nature's geometric signs,
In starry flake, and pellicle,
All day the hoary meteor fell;
And, when the second morning
We looked upon a world unknown,
On nothing we could call our own.
Around the glistening wonder bent
The blue walls of the firmament,
No cloud above, no earth below, —
A universe of sky and snow!
The old familiar sights of ours
Took marvellous shapes; strange
domes and towers
Rose up where sty or corn-crib stood,
Or garden wall, or belt of wood.
A smooth white mound the brush
A fenceless drift what once was
The bridal-post an old man sat
With loose-flung coat and high
The well-curb had a Chinese roof;
And even the long sweep, high
In Its slant splendor, seemed to tell
Of Pisa's leaning miracle.
John Greenleaf Whlttier.
SUPPRESS THE REVOLVER
A bill has been introduced in the
legislature by Senator Josiah Collins
At King bounty which should be
Passed. it prohibits the sale of re
volvers in this state to any person
except a peace officer or a member
of the militia. While such a law
would not entirely prevent the per
nicious practice of "toting a gun,"
It would stop a great many people
from forming the habit and would
greatly decrease the death rate in
Hundreds of deaths can be traced
*° the possession of revolvers.
Hardly a day passes that the press
dispatches do not record the acci
dental killing of one or more persons
"rom the careless handling of a re
volver, or a murder commltteed be
cause some one lost control of his
temper and had a revolver at hand.
A majority of the reports of shoot
ing tragedies. contain the statement
that the person committing the
crime, either purchased or borrowed

a revolver and then, in the heat of
passion, proceeded to use it, only to
regret the rash action when it was
too late. Any maniac into whose
disordered brain flashes the delusion
that he ought to kill someone, can
step into a hardware store or pawn
shop, purchase a revolver and then
hunt down his unsuspecting victim.
The revolver might well be defined
as a weapon to facilitate murder.
The fact that a man, not a peace
officer, carries a revolver is an indi
cation that he is either a coward or
a bully. Such a weapon is of little
or no protection against highway
men, because they nearly always
"get the drop" on their victims, and
is more often an Invitation to death
than a safeguard in case of burg
laries. Peace officers and soldiers
need them in the discharge of their
duties, hut other people would be
far better off without them.
The bill will be opposed by the
powerful influence of the men who
make money out of the manufacture
and sale of firearms and ammuni
tion, just as the substitution of arbi
tration for war is opposed by the
manufacturers of artillery and the
builders of battle ships, but the world
is growing too enlightened to much
longer endure the burden of misery
and bloodshed, because there is
"money in it" for a few manufactur
Senator Collins' hill should he'
promptly enacted into law.
TIME FOR ACTION
it is all well enough to denounce
the use of grain sacks and pass reso
lutions in favor of handling grain in
bulk, but talk and resolutions will
not change the system. The bene
ficiaries of the sack system will have'
little cause to worry until the farm
ers prepare to handle bulk grain on
their farms. When they do that, the
buyers, the railroads, the millers and
the exporters will recognize that the
change is at hand and will make
their preparations accordingly. The
individual farm is the source of the
grain supply and any change in the
system of handling the product must
be inaugurated at the source.
The construction of granaries or
the Installation of steel tanks by a
few farmers in each community will
do more toward putting an end to
the use of sacks than any amount of
talk or any number of resolutions,
because the bulk system can not be
successfully inaugurated until the
farmers have made provisions to en
force their demands by preparing to
handle the grain in bulk themselves,
before they deliver it to the ele
It will not cost a great deal for
each farmer to install the necessary
equipment for handling his grain
crop in bulk, and the saving In time
and money resulting from the dis
carding of sacks would in a year or
two equal that cost.
This subject bas been thoroughly
discussed and the farmers are almost
unanimously in favor of adopting the
bulk system. But the time for dis
cussion is ended and the time for
action has come. ll* the farmers
mean business they can bring about
the change in short order, but until
they are prepared to handle grain in
bulk on their farms they need not
expect that the railroads and buyers
will handle It in bulk after it leaves
the farms. The men who expect to
benefit by any change are the men
who must initiate that change, be
cause other people are not going to
do it for them.
The Washington Times, a Muusey
newspaper, says that the public do
main "belongs to the people of the
United States. it does not belong to
the states within which it is situated.
It never did. By statute law and
historical custom it has always been
administered for the nation at large
by the national government."
Yet the facts of history are direct
ly to the contrary. The public do
main in each of the original 13 states
was retained by them lor their own
uses when the Union was formed.
When Vermont was admitted the fed
eral government set up no claim to
the public domain and the state was
permitted to retain it. The same was
true when Kentucky was admitted,
and also when Tennessee was admit
ted. Texas, on annexation to the
United States and admission to the
Union, retained all of the public do
main for its own uses and the gov
ernment never took an acre of laud
within its borders.
Ohio was the first state to be ad
mitted which was denied the right to
the public lands within its borders.
This denial was because of the fact
that the lands were originally the
property of the state of Virginia,
which had ceded them to the genera]
government, in order that from their
sale the revolutionary war debt
might be extinguished, lt was held
later by the supreme court of the
United States, in the leading case of
Pollard's Lessee vs. Hagan, that the
United States never acquired any
title to these lands or to any other
lands ceded by the original states
and later erected into other states,
save as trustee, and that when the
trust was fully executed the remain
ing public lands would become the
property ol tlie states in which they
were situated, the decision adding
that not. until this was done would
the newer states be In the Union on
exact constitutional equality with Ihe
The federal government owns the
public lands merely because the
newer states, as a condition pre
cedent to admission, were forced to
concede the title. Properly, how
ever, the United States, so far as
public lands are concerned, has
never ceased to be a trustee for the
people.— Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
